I have every copy of Angling magazine - so much of it still feels fresh and interesting. The standard of writing was so good. It inspired me to try new things, including the brilliant bass fishing pieces by John Darling and Digger Derrington (as well as the Editor, Brian Harris). I dreamed of the running surf and the spindrift thrown by the wind, etc. All a very long way from my firmly inland existence! I did get the chance later, though and bass fishing from the shore has to be right up there as some of the most exhilarating fishing ...
I remember "Angling" fondly. Met Brian Harris on the bank once - but unaware of his backstory then!

The lady in the middle picture looks like a ringer for Ethel Frousen (bad spelling) who used to wrap rods for Lenoard a little later. I'll stick my DVD in at the weekend of Chasing the Taper and take a screenshot. Just for my own curiosity than anything else

She looks an awful lot like the lady working on the lures to my eyes. But I don't quite think it's the same person.

I imagine the 'Dame Edna' glasses and perm were quite popular in the 1950s.

I think this is a picture of her when she was younger . . . . :clown:

Picked up this nice old picture on Sunday, of early Victorian anglers discussing their day back at an inn.

I like the story it tells, as I think one of them has been piking, because there is a livebait kettle on the floor, and the old chap in the blue coat is regaling the others with his encounter with a large fish! (Notice the only one not talking is the one with all the fish! :pipe: :laughs: )

With all their studied expressions, it has the look of Walter Dendy Sadler about it, but I don't think it is by him. I've seen it before but can't place it.

It's just a print on lacquered card and the reds are pretty faded, but a 22" x 16" picture in a gilded frame is worth £1 of anyone's money! :pirate:

It's another nostalgic piece to adorn the wall of my fishing museum garage anyway! :grin:

Lovely.

You could get it scanned and enhanced by someone who's better at it than me.

I've spent a bit more time for a more subtle effort. Someone who really knows what they're doing with this kind of thing could make it really come alive.

Excellent! :grin: I've just downloaded your enhanced version Dave. Thanks for that! :thumbs:

(I've just set it as the 'wallpaper' on my tablet. :cool: ).

As I said it's a quick job, and not something I'm practised at. If I was better at it I'd change the hue of the sky through the window.

I scanned an old, dark print I have and fiddled with the file to bring out detail and enhance the colours then printed it out on matt photo paper. Looked quite respectable. :smile:

Well done Dave! I tried to do an image search, but the process defeated me (or my feeble tablet!).

The colour variations are very interesting. Seeing variations in hand coloured etchings is not unusual, but unexpected on prints based on an oil painting.

I guess there was some 'artistic licence' at play by printers authorised to reproduce the artwork? :shrug:

Tine Eye is good for image searches if Google fails.

There'll also be variation in the digital reproductions I expect. Some more 'improved' than others, some just done badly, and many other reasons. Colour matching is an almost insoluble problem!

That is all very clever stuff Dave, that Tin Eye is a handy tool, I will have to remember that in future if trying to find information of an image.
Nice picture too John.

You'd think they'd have left the most interesting part of the picture uncovered!
